3 suggestions to simplify patient education
from Dentistry IQ
We all know the look. It's the look that says, “I have no idea what you just said, but I would feel stupid if I told you.” Periodontal disease, bone loss, plaque biofilm, calculus, inflammation ... these are all terms that have become second nature to us, but they leave our patients’ heads spinning. Do not forget: the language we speak is a foreign language to the average person. But this language, despite its complexity, should be taught to patients in understandable terms to help them improve their oral health literacy.
